So a question for you California peoples: A friend of mine is gonna be in the Culver City area with his crew for about a week or so to finish up an independent film project and are looking for places to eat. Any one have any suggestions?

We're from the Midwest so anywhere with steak fries and chicken fingers. Also, half of us are vegans.

i don't do LA, so have no recommendations - but i suspect you will have no problem finding vegan places. steak fries, maybe not so much.

ok, can anyone advise me on chestnuts?

understand, i am not exactly a chestnut novice. i love chestnuts, and every year i make a stab at them, but i keep getting wildly discrepant results.

my general technique is to roast them at 400 deg for ~40 min, but there is always a fair number that i have to practically shave to get the inner skin off. so yesterday i bought some, and tried a new technique - boil for 30 sec, then roast at 425 for 25 min.

out of over 30 chestnuts, i was able to keep i think 2 whole. for the rest, i have a large container of what can best be described as chestnut meal...which is not going to work at _all_ in the brandied chestnut recipe i was going to try. all trying to get the blasted inner skins off.

so: anybody know what the deal is? is it better to have chestnuts done less-well or more-well, to get them to stay whole? anyone have any fool-proof cooking/peeling techniques?

these, by the way, are european chestnuts. i have no problem with water chestnuts, as they grow in cans.



also, anyone have any good recipes for chestnut meal?

just swing your arm out in any direction and you will hit at least four vegan places. go up Lincoln Blvd to Venice or up La Cienega to the Sunset Strip and you'll be able to hit eight or nine.

also for the carnivores if they leave california without having gone to in-n-out they need to be sent back or shot.

Where is everyone?

I realise now, I ask this everytime I show back up. Am I the anti-Poochie? Is everyone else an ur-Poochie?

Not in a geographical or metaphorical sense, just wondering where different forum bodies have wandered off to. Or did they all fade out as life took them, same as me?

A couple of months back the site got hit hard by some kind of attack? Or glitch? The forums basically went down for a couple of weeks along with the comic, so everyone kinda drifted away for a bit.

actually, we all just keep switching names.

except me. i keep mine to fool everyone else into not suspecting the name changes.



....the fact that i can never figure out how i did an av last time has _nothing_ to do with it. nothing.

he's referring to older 'festers who've been around since dirt.

I'm going to guess that was the day the forums went up for the first time.
